How should I store my product before and after it’s mixed?

Store dry powder in a tightly closed container in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. After mixing with water, refrigerate extra product solution promptly and use within 24 hours. Reheat gently over warm water and mix thoroughly before feeding. Do not microwave or freeze the solution.  Shelf life can be extended by freezing dry powder in a tightly sealed container.

How long is my product good for? What is the shelf life?

Please refer to your individual product packaging for recommended shelf life. This information can usually be found under the Storage section.

Product shelf life can vary between product type and packaging. Milk replacers generally have a 12 month shelf life and supplement products can range from 12-24 months from the date of manufacture. Shelf life can be extended by freezing dry powder in a tightly sealed container.

Where do I find the date code and how do I read it?

The manufacture date code can be found on the back of the package toward the bottom or the side gusset. It will be found in black type and will contain letters and numbers. The date code on your package is not an expiration date, it represents the date the product was manufactured and packaged.

Example: MFG A04/17/18AZ 16:18 UNIT 0798

04/17/18 = Packaging Date: Month/date/year
16:18 = time stamp
Unit 0789 = bag number within packaging run



Example: 10118B04/17/18H
04/17/18 = Packaging Date: Month/date/year

What if there isn’t a cup in my bag?

The cup inside our small package (4-8 lb sizes) milk replacers holds approximately 3.5 ounces by weight of milk replacer powder, and is equal in volume to a standard dry measuring cup. Large bag calf milk replacers (25 lb and 50 lb) call for 12 ounces of powder to be mixed into 2 quarts of water. Weight powder for most accurate results.

Doesn’t a standard measuring cup hold 8 ounces?

A standard liquid measuring cup holds 8 fluid ounces, but milk replacer powder actually weighs half as much as the same volume of water, so the same size cup holds approximately 3.5 ounces of dry milk replacer powder.
